Outline:

As Chief during the "War in the Woods," Moses holds true spirit of a time when Clayoquot Sound was under threat by logging companies and came together as a collective to protect it. 

Clayoquot Wild offers a special rendering of Tofino from a true locals perspective. Moses Martin is not only a long time resident of this beautiful area but a political figure and voice for his people. 

Established in 1995, Moses and his family have been running multiple guided tours around the area such as, whale watching, bear watching, hot springs cove tours, deep sea fishing charters, and history tours. While Moses holds vast knowledge of the Clayoquot Sound, he is also a great story teller and might possibly leave you in astonishment.

His friendly demeanor and expertise are sure to leave you with a bigger understanding of what Clayoquot Sound really means to its residents and why it's so important to treat it with Iisaak - respect.
